This is a massive move in the @OHLHockey . @Ottawa67sHockey – locked and loaded. Going for it now. @miketendy was last year’s #OHL goalie of the year and was just named 1 of 3 Canadian goalies trying out for the #WJC2019 team. https://t.co/Q9WIFnGTqO

So tough seeing this guy go. Living with him over the last year and a half has taught me so much on and off the ice. Best billet brother I could ever ask for! Best of luck bro, thank you for everything!❤️ @miketendy #theking pic.twitter.com/gBdVlz1xIg
